Snow showers to impact western New Jersey this afternoon and early evening

Snow showers to impact western New Jersey this afternoon and early evening

Including the cities of...Newton...Washington...Morristown...Stroudsburg
144 PM EST Fri Dec 30 2016

...Snow showers and possible snow squalls...

A band of snow showers with embedded snow squalls may extend from the Great Lakes into parts of the Pocono Region in Pennsylvania and parts of 
northern New Jersey during the late afternoon and evening hours. The time period of concern is from about 3:00 PM until 8:00 PM.

The snow showers and squalls may quickly reduce the visibility making for hazardous travel conditions. Also, a period of moderate
to heavy snowfall could leave a quick accumulation of an inch or two with locally higher amounts. Roads and walkways may become
snow covered and slippery.

If you will be traveling in Monroe County in Pennsylvania or in the New Jersey counties of Sussex, Warren and Morris be prepared
for hazardous travel. The area includes parts of Interstate 80, Intestate 380 and Interstate 287.

Snow showers moving through northern part of western New Jersey

Snow showers moving through northern part of western New Jersey

810 AM EST Thu Dec 15 2016

Snow showers will impact portions of northeast Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey…particularly the Interstate 80 corridor… through 10 AM. A couple tenths of an inch of snow is possible. If traveling…be prepared for rapidly changing visibilities which may dip to around one-half mile at times. Also maintain a safe following distance…as roads may become slippery.

Winds are also very gust this morning. A wind gust of 38 mph occurred in Stewartsville at 7:10 this morning.

I’ll have some initial thoughts on the Saturday morning storm around mid day today.

First round of light snow is nearing the end in western New Jersey. There will be a lull in the activity as you can see in the radar above. The next area will be more likely to be snow squalls as this will be accompanied by the cold front.


Look for these flurries and snow showers to become more frequent as the afternoon wears on. Unfortunately the rush home might be the peak. These caused numerous accidents west of here in Indiana earlier today.

Good morning western New Jersey. We are waking up to mostly cloudy and cold this Tuesday morning. Today will feature two minor rounds of snow today. The first will be primarily flurries that will be around mid day. There could be a brief break then another round later in the afternoon into the evening. The second round could be more in the snow shower or even a snow squall as the arctic front moves through. Both of these could leave a coating in some areas to a 1/2″ or 1″ in others. Higher amounts will be to the north and west.

Wanted to share the above weather graph from my home weather station in Stewartsville, NJ. Notice the impressive and steady temperature drop from early afternoon which is constant to right now! You can clearly see from the temperature (top) and the pressure (bottom) when the cold front came through. Of course many people in western New Jersey could also see and hear when the cold front came through yesterday! Not only were there impressive clouds and heavy rain squalls but thunder and lightning in some spots too! Quite impressive for January!


A reinforcement of cold air is going to arrive on Tuesday courtesy of a fast moving storm system called a “clipper.” We will see flurries and even some snow showers in western New Jersey tomorrow into tomorrow night. It’s not out of the question that some locations could receive a dusting of snow by Wednesday morning. This is more likely to the north and west but could happen anywhere!

There will be a slight warm up by end of week followed by another storm late weekend into next week then more cold air.

The cold front moved through western New Jersey yesterday with some strong winds and a sharp drop in temperature. Stewartsville only recorded 0.08″ of rain but there was a 44 mph wind gust and a steep temperature drop when the front passed.

Today and tomorrow will be noted for unseasonably cold, windy and even a passing rain or wet snow shower (today only). In fact the NWS has issued a Freeze Warning for tonight and a Freeze Watch for tomorrow night. What does this mean? If you jumped the gun a little and planted sensitive plants outdoors, either bring them in tonight or cover them up. Generally it’s not safe to plant until May 10th in western New Jersey area.

The weekend looks better but we will be watching a storm system to our south hopefully stay there.

Early risers in western New Jersey saw some light snow this morning that coated the ground in a few areas. This was the result of a cold front that moved through. Winds have increased and will stay breezy today but high temperatures will make it to the low 50’s but feel cooler in the wind.

On Tuesday a small fast moving clipper type system will approach the area and give us some rain or wet snow shower in the afternoon ending by early evening. Then we start off April on a sunny but chilly note on Wednesday. Warmer air arrives for the end of the week but so does the chance of showers by Thursday night and Friday.

16. January 2015 · Comments Off on Artic Cold Front Brings Back Cold Air · Categories: weather discussion · Tags: , ,

An artic cold front has passed through western new jersey. this will bring back cold and windy conditions to western new jersey.


Look  for cold temperatures on Friday night and Saturday morning. Overnight lows will be in the single digits. Combined with the wind will not make it pleasant outside.

The front is bringing in some snow showers that will move through the area this afternoon.

Saturday will be cold with high in the mid 20’s.

Sunday out weather will change fast with a storm system moving up the coast. At this time it looks to stay far enough to the east that will give us only light rain. Further to the east, they will have a wind swept rain with over 1” of rain. The rain will end perhaps as some snow showers Sunday night as colder air returns.

We had more impressive snow showers yesterday. One went by in the late morning and slowly sank to the south. I thought we were done for the day as there was nothing else to the north. In fact the skies cleared somewhat and the temperature went up a little and melted most of the snow on the ground.

The almost out of no where a persistent snow band setup and trained over my area for a couple of hours


I picked up 1.1” of new snow. I also had 0.6” on the ground in the morning.

This morning, due to compression and evaporation, I only have about 1” left on the ground. There are some icy spots on sidewalks.

We should only have scattered flurries today. We might even see some periods of sunshine. Temperatures will remain in the 30’s today as well as into the weekend. Quite weather pattern with next chance of precipitation next Tuesday afternoon.

Long range weather maps continue to look “interesting” the days before Christmas. Time will tell if we have a Whte Christmas or not.

6/10" snow picked up last evening

We picked up 7/10” of snow in the snow showers that primarily visited the area yesterday afternoon and evening. We also some some additional snow showers overnight. This morning there was 6/10” of snow still on the ground. More importantly it was below freezing and the driveway was snow covered. My road was clear – I suspect the excellent road department spread salt yesterday.

Look for today to be similar to yesterday. Partly to mostly cloudy, brisk with scattered snow showers. High temperatures should be in the mid 30’s. This weather will continue into the weekend but we will loose the snow showers. Next chance of precipitation is next Tuesday at this point.
